Valkenburg Naval Air Base (marinevliegkamp Valkenburg) is a former air base located just south of Valkenburg, which is part of Katwijk and close to the city of Leiden.
The Dutch Royal Netherlands Navy used the base until 2006, being their center of operations for the Lockheed P-3 Orion border protection aircraft. The Orions were sold to Germany and Portugal, resulting in the closure of the air base. Though officially closed as an airport, it still sees limited use for special events and by gliders and occasionally small piston aircraft, most of which from local flying club Aeroclub Valkenburg.
Current exciting plans are to use the area as a development site for unmanned systems: Unmanned Valley. A part of the large terrain is currently being developed for housing.
